Jinjer and Vended set to join Slipknot for upcoming European tour

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on June 21, 2022

The run of dates includes highly anticipated festival appearances at Wacken, Pukkelpop as well as Knotfest Germany and Finland.

The visceral experience that is Slipknot live is set to make it’s way back to Europe for the first time since 2019. The anticipation of the band’s triumphant return is compounded with the growing momentum of new music that is on the horizon – the eagerly awaited follow-up to their lauded full length, We Are Not Your Kind.

Given that cycle was also the last time Europe was treated to the band’s live assault, a run of EU tour dates has long been overdue. Set to begin their live campaign starting next month, Slipknot has announced a pair of coveted support spots for the trek and the tandem is among the genre’s most exciting, promising prospects.

Recently allowed to leave their war-torn country of Ukraine with the blessing of the Ministry Of Culture, Jinjer will continue their march as international ambassadors of their countrymen and the greater metal culture, helming the direct support spot on the Slipknot run. The union comes after Jinjer was initially forced to withdraw from their appearance on the first leg of the Knotfest Roadshow in the U.S., due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Also enlisted for the stretch of show dates is Iowa’s next generation of unhinged aggressors in Vended. Riding a breakout 2021, the Des Moines crew celebrated the release of their debut EP, What Is It/Kill It late last year and have been pounding the pavement to spread their gospel since.

The upcoming European tour will also see Slipknot make highly-anticipated appearances at celebrated major international festivals including the heavy metal pilgrimage of Wacken Open Air, Pukkelpop Festival, as well as heading up huge line-ups for their own Knotfest banner in both Germany as well as Finland.
